Transition Town Hastings (TTH) is part of the Global Transition Network. Transition is a movement that has been growing around the world since 2005.
It’s about communities stepping up to address the global challenges we face by starting local. By coming together, we are able to crowd-source solutions. We seek to nurture a caring culture, one focused on supporting each other, both as groups or as wider communities.
In practice, we are reclaiming the economy, sparking entrepreneurship, reimagining work, re-skilling ourselves and weaving webs of connection and support. It’s an approach that has spread now to over 50 countries, in thousands of groups: in towns, villages, cities, universities, and schools.
We really hope you feel inspired to take part, join us to help reimagine and rebuild our world.
TTH was initially established in 2008. In 2015, after a lull in activity, a new group was established with the following aims:
- To respond to the challenges of climate change and over-dependence on fossil fuels and economic instability.
- To support affiliated groups where possible in Hastings, St Leonards and Rother.
- To provide practical examples of sustainable living.
- To promote knowledge-sharing, raise awareness and encourage community participation and well-being.
We are an unincorporated, non-political organisation relying on a committed group of volunteers.
